Thank you for stopping by!

I am a Minnesota-based freelance writer with comprehensive experience in media and nonprofit communications. I have written more than 65 published or forthcoming children’s nonfiction books for publishers in the United States and Canada on topics including the Oregon Trail, race and class, the Taj Mahal and many more.

Whether writing for intrepid elementary-schoolers, community newspaper readers, social media followers or corporate communicators, I keep it clear and concise while striking the right tone to engage your unique audience.
